I came across AMBIllustrations recently on Etsy and purchased a couple of illustrations - some sunflowers and some cheerleaders. So fun!

Both of these images were colored with copics. The top one was also edged in distress ink. I love how both turned out. Both would be perfect images for notecards, sympathy cards, thinking of you cards, birthday cards... you get the idea - versatile! I love images that have multiple uses and that you can color in different ways to give a different look. I see many cards in my future with these beauties!
Also, my latest design team post is up on the Pickled Potpourri Designs blog. I'm dreaming of spring so used tulip digis. Tulips are such a happy flower! Check out those cards here:  http://blog.pickled-potpourri.com/2018/01/tiptoe-through-tulips.html

Happy Stamping!

Day 8 - International Tea Day! Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Tea Time!!

This is my final card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and it's in honor of International Tea Day! This came out better than how I envisioned it would. And, to be honest, it was a hot mess of a card for a bit but then I kept playing and got it to where I wanted. Does that ever happen to you? The swirlies were a last minute add, after some of the sequins and it really pulled it all together. I used the Stamps of Life teapot and cup and stamped on other images from My Favorite Things and Newton's Nook and colored it with copics to give it the Christmas feel. Isn't it fun!! I love when a plan comes together. :)

Thanks for popping by my blog through the blog hop and hope you'll stop in again.

Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!

Day 7: Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Cup of Good Cheer

Day 7 features another happy little cocoa card in purple! (The best color ever!!!) A little distress ink was smooshed on the polka dot cardstock to turn the white polka dots violet. The same ink was used on the cream card base to tie everything together.
There's one more day of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I'm sad that it's almost over. Be sure to check back as I have a project to post for Day 8 to celebrate International Tea Day.

Happy stamping!
